Full Hazard Mitigation Plan

The Illinois Emergency Management Agency has developed a 2004 State of Illinois Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan. The Plan addresses thunderstorms, tornadoes, winter storms, floods, extreme heat/drought, and earthquakes. The contents of the Plan are intended to provide the framework for hazard mitigation not only during the recovery and reconstruction process, but on a year-round basis to identify current and proposed mitigation projects which will reduce the potential for future losses and decrease the costs to the taxpayers.
